History of the Cajuns
French Settlers in Louisiana

The First European Settlers
  The first French exploreres were in Louisiana by the close of the 17th century.  For the first few decades, the population of Louisiana remained very small ... mainly consisting of French soldiers, explorers, and entrepreneurs.  Some of them decided to stay in Louisiana.
   As the decades went by, more French decided to settle in Louisiana.  Even after Spain took control in the 1760s, French people came into the territory ... since the culture was still primarily French.
